Abstract: THE EVALUATORS OF THE OTTAWA CRIMINAL COURT VOLUNTEER PROGRAM (ANDREWS, KIESSLING, RUSSELL, AND GRANT, 1977) CONSIDERED FIVE ELEMENTS OF DIMENSIONS OF THE COUNSELING PROCESS: (1) QUALITY OF RELATIONSHIP, INCLUDING THE FREQUENCY AND NATURE OF CONTACTS, AS WELL AS SOCIOEMOTIONAL FACTORS SUCH AS TRUST, CARING, UNDERSTANDING, AND INTERPERSONAL OPENNESS; (2) AUTHORITY OR CONTROL, INVOLVING THE COUNSELOR'S USE OF RULES AND SANCTIONS; (3) THE ANTICRIMINAL DIMENSION, CONCERNING THE EXTENT TO WHICH THE OFFICER EXPRESSES, MODELS, AND DIFFERENTIALLY REWARDS ANTICRIMINAL AND PROCRIMINAL PATTERNS; (4) PROBLEMSOLVING ORIENTATION, INVOLVING THE EXTENT TO WHICH THE OFFICER ACTIVELY ENGAGES THE CLIENT IN SOLVING PERSONAL PROBLEMS; AND (5) ENVIRONMENTAL FACILITATION AND THE ADVOCATE-BROKER ROLE, INVOLVING THE OFFICER ASSISTANCE TO THE CLIENT IN THE USE OF COMMUNITY RESOURCES. SEVERAL OF THE PAPERS PRESENTED HERE EXAMINE AND DISCUSS THESE FIVE DIMENSIONS OF THE COUNSELING PROCESS. ONE PAPER PROVIDES AN OVERVIEW OF RELEVANT THEORY AND RESEARCH, WITH SEPARATE DISCUSSION PAPERS FOR EACH OF THE FIVE DIMENSIONS. THE PAPERS WERE PRODUCED FOR PROGRAM MANAGERS AS A TRAINING AID TO COMPLEMENT PRESERVICE AND INSERVICE TRAINING SESSIONS. EACH DISCUSSION PAPER INCLUDES A REVIEW OF THEORETICAL PERSPECTIVES AND A SAMPLING OF RESEARCH RESULTS RELEVANT TO THE APPROPRIATE DIMENSION. SOME OF THE AVAILABLE MEANS OF MEASURING AND IMPLEMENTING THE DIMENSIONS ARE APPENDED. THE SCALES OUTLINED OR REFERENCED MAY BE HELPFUL IN THE SELECTION OF MEASURING INSTRUMENTS FOR EVALUATION. REFERENCE LISTS WITH FROM 9 TO 52 CITATIONS ACCOMPANY THE PAPERS. (AUTHOR ABSTRACT MODIFIED--RCB)
